Riverside Engagement Session in Memphis

Memphis Engagement Session

My time with Peyton & Ken Friday on Mud Island for their riverside engagement session in Memphis was so full of laughter my cheeks hurt on the drive home! The Word says that laughter is good medicine, and Friday was truly balm to my soul!

Peyton & Ken both live on Mud Island in Memphis, TN. Mud Island is a peaceful riverside community just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Memphis. We spent most of our time along the river, which has become a very special place for Peyton & Ken.

How God Brought Them Together

My newest Meridith Lee couple met at Mississippi State during their freshman year. They were in some of the same classes and even shared a chemistry book. He told Peyton that he liked liked her right before the summer as he was going off to camp with no way of contact except through letters! So this sweet couple wrote old fashioned letters to each other that summer and began officially dating when they returned to MSU in the fall.

How He Proposed

Peyton and Ken both recently moved to Memphis. He started his job there and she is starting school. Peyton continues, “My favorite thing to do is go on picnics. We have always gone on them since we have been together. We live on Mud Island that is surrounded by rivers where we like to go on walks. What I thought was just a normal picnic date night in one of our “spots” ended up being the BEST surprise ever! Ken is the best and I am usually the worst and try to figure out surprises, but he kept this one from me which made it so so special!! He put in so much thought to our engagement and planned a surprise party with all of our families! It was the most special day that I will treasure forever.”

My Prayer For You

Peyton & Ken, I have prayed for you as I have edited the images from your Riverside Engagement Session in Memphis. The word that keeps coming to my mind is “encourager”. You are two of the most encouraging people I have ever met! This is truly a gift that the Lord will use to advance His Kingdom! Hard times WILL come. Jesus said, “in the world you WILL have trouble. Take heart, I have overcome the world.” Your gift of encouragement will help both you and those around you get through the hard times. It will even help you to see God’s hand at work in the midst of the hard.

Holy Spirit, continue to fill Peyton & Ken with joy and strength as they move forward into all You are calling them to! I ask you to surround them with like minded community as they look for a new church body to join in Memphis. Give them peace and wisdom and they begin their life together, knowing that you are guiding their steps. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

My time with you was such an encouragement for me! And your prayers have greatly blessed me!! I can’t wait to see you both again at Fairview Inn in March!!

A Traditional Wedding at Sterling Hall | Mr and Mrs Martin

Mr and Mrs Martin’s Traditional Wedding at Sterling Hall in Canton, MS was absolutely STUNNING! Even with all the rain, we were still able to get outside for some portraits. I am so thankful for cute clear umbrellas and the gazebo in Canton Square! We would NOT be stopped by the rain!! I was also excited to have portrait time inside the beautiful Sterling Hall Venue. This put my off camera flash skills to work! I am so in love with how all the images turned out!!

I have absolutely loved getting to know Jordan and Lance from their initial client meeting, to their engagement session, and through our communications as we planned the details of their perfect wedding day! It has been such a joy to work with you and pray for you throughout the process!

As I have edited the images below, the verse that keeps coming to my mind is Ephesians 4:2-3: “With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” I am praying this over you and your marriage.

Thank you for trusting me to capture your Traditional Wedding at Sterling Hall.

A Rainy Philadelphia Wedding |Mr and Mrs Hanna

Philadelphia Wedding

Anna Leigh + Houston overcame numerous obstacles to become Mr & Mrs Hanna on their rainy Philadelphia wedding day. Saturday morning’s storm included trees down, power loss and other storm related issues. But Saturday, October 26, 2019 was a day of overcoming! We stood in agreement and commanded the rain to stop, and the day that began with obstacles quickly turned to a day of rejoicing as we celebrated love!

I have loved getting to know Anna Leigh + Houston during their engagement season. From planning and capturing their engagement session at the Town of Livingston, I knew that Anna Leigh loves open green spaces. I was so excited when their reception was moved to the Philadelphia Country Club and we were able to capture their bride & groom portraits on the golf course! The golf course was the perfect location for a rainy Philadelphia wedding. I was able to keep Anna Leigh and Houston on the golf cart path and out of the mud. We also kept the clear umbrellas at hand in case the drizzle began again. The Lord gave us a perfect fifteen minute break in the rain so we were able to capture beautiful outdoor portraits! Answered prayers indeed!

Anna Leigh + Houston, I have continued to pray for you and your marriage as I have edited these images. I see the Lord’s hand in every detail of your wedding day. From stopping the rain, to the outpouring of joy, Holy Spirit was present in every moment. I teared up again as I edited the images from your foot washing, remembering how special this moment was. You kept Jesus at the forefront of every detail of your wedding day. Continue to do this, and you will truly be a chord of three strands that will not be easily broken.

I am so thankful for the amazing vendor team that overcame every obstacle to make Mr & Mrs Hanna’s rainy Philadelphia wedding day absolutely perfect!

Mr. and Mrs. Wildman | A Rainy Day Mississippi Wedding at The MSU Riley Center

As Dan & Ronit’s wedding day approached, we all watched the weather closely. Praying for the Lord to move the rain and provide a beautiful clear day for their Christmas themed backyard wedding. But His plans were different, and the Terrica of Southern Productions was able to contact all the vendors and move everything to the MSU Riley Center Grand Opera House. This wedding day’s vendor team went above and beyond to make Dan & Ronit’s wedding day every bit as beautiful and special as their original plans. The show must go on and Terrica and her team brought everything together beautifully!
